> Of COURSE you phoned her! Why not? It seems to me to be a perfectly sensible thing to do.


>You know your Pea Doc and his habits, and you are impatient to get started with the new T --- so yes, you phoned her.

Yup. Wow, do I feel better now.
I like that. Pea Doc. You suggested that before as his honorary title - right? I am inclined to agree... I was reluctant to get there, but yup. He is a pea Doc indeed :-)

> Give yourself a break, Alex. I'm sure you made sense to this T and that she understands your position somewhat, and why you called her.

Yeah. I think the email helped clarify that.

> My question is this: why do we all so often see ourselves in this light of making fools of ourselves?? I'm guilty of this too, of always thinking the worst of myself, believing that whatever I said shouldn't have been said, or said in that way, etc. I suffer agonies over this.

Hmm. I think it is something to do with low self esteem...


Pea Doc came up with a monthly figure and thought he'd try and get funding for that for 6 months. I heard back from him today that he managed to talk to the t (gee I wonder if she called him...) and she said half that monthly figure - for 12 months.

He took that to the funding committee and they said they want
1) Proof that WINZ (welfare) won't help me out.
(Or how much they will help me out and they won't fund that amount).
2) Proof that ACC (they pay for therapy if it is the result of sexual abuse) won't help me out. (Or how much they will help me out and they won't fund that amount).
3) A written proposal (I KNEW IT!!!).

And their only concern was that they would be setting precedent for other people to request that they do the same thing for them - and the case my Pea Doc cited there was eating disorders.

Golly gee, does that mean the service doesn't have anyone to treat eating disorders?????


I don't think he can mean it like that. I don't see how funding me to see someone outside the service when there isn't anyone to treat me inside the service is setting precedent for them to have to fund external treatment for eating disorders.

Strange people...

So I sent him the inevitable response:


And now we shall just have to wait...

Though to be fair, it looks good :-)
